Just to let you know, I have set up a continuous build server on one of
my virtual machines (lucid lynx). In addition, I have a fedora 13 slave
virtual machine configured. Both are building gtkpod and libgpod in
response to git commits. If everything goes ok then their existence
should remain transparent. However, should a commit cause a build to
fail then they will be emailing the list.
I plan on setting up a slackware vm shortly too. 3 will be the limit
given memory capacity of the host machine but if anyone wants to
contribute a vm/box then please let me know. Basically, the machine
requires ssh on it and obviously access to the net so that hudson (the
build server) can login and build.
Most of the time the build servers will just sit quietly in the
background but will provide an important testing ground for different
distros, highlighting odd compile problems, incompatibilities etc ...
